Empower From Home

Take a break from Distance Learning and Working from Home to reconnect with family members and share in exciting and empowering play! Join Empower Leadership every Monday at 12pm EST for our weekly #EmpowerFromHome Activity! The Stay Safe, Stay Home order isn’t going away any time soon and we are here to help with fun and exciting activities for the entire family! Each week, we will share a new “video lesson” that will explain the activity, provide a demonstration, and highlight an important leadership and empowerment message!

Be sure to show us how you did! Take a video of you doing the activity, post on social media, and use #EmpowerFromHome – we will give a social media shout out each Friday to all who post!

Our Monday May 18th, 2020 #EmpowerFromHome activity is the Flight of the Paper Airplane challenge! All you need is a few sheets of paper, some scotch tape, open outdoor space, and a bucket or hula hoop for a target. This challenge is all about inventive recreation – use your creativity to design and build your paper airplane then try one of many different games; including max distance, max time of flight, closest to target, H.O.R.S.E., and more!

  • Fun and innovative “product design” (paper airplane building)
  • Inventive and creative outdoor recreation play!

Our Monday May 11th, 2020 #EmpowerFromHome activity is the Porcupine Progression challenge! All you need are some nails (at least 13), a wooden block or large old sponge (dry), and a flat surface. Learn how to balance 12 nails on the head of a single nail then take your shot at the world record of 84 nails! Creative problem solving and learning from trial and error are keys to success in this challenge!

  • Learn the basic balancing structure – then take your shot at the record!
  • Lessons from early struggles will lead you to the solution!

Our Monday May 4th, 2020 #EmpowerFromHome activity is the Aluminum Foil Boat Weight Bearing Challenge! All you need is a square of aluminum foil, a bunch of pennies, a bucket filled with water, and some space outdoors. First, build your boat and make sure it floats. Then place pennies into your boat, one at a time, until your boat sinks! Do you think you can beat 92 pennies?!?!?

  • Try different style/size boats – see which works best!
  • A creative plan and courage to try new ideas works best!

Our Monday April 27th, 2020 #EmpowerFromHome activity is the Blind Maze Challenge! All you need is a pencil, a flat surface, and a printed maze. First try the maze by yourself with your eyes closed; then, try it with a “Communicator” partner. We bet you’ll do a little better with some help!

  • Two trials, once by yourself then once with a partner.
  • Try your best, then have the courage to ask for help when needed!

Our Monday April 20th, 2020 #EmpowerFromHome activity is Penny Possibilities! All you need is a penny, a cup of water, and a water dropper (or you can use your finger). How many drops do you think can you get on your penny before it overflows? We bet you that you’ll get more than you thought!

  • Penny Possibilities
  • How many drops of water do you think you can get to stay on your penny?
  • Write down your guess before you start then see how many you get!


Join Empower Leadership’s Dan Jaskot in our exclusive Distance Learning Workshop to help make the most of your time as an at-home student.

The day-to-day routines of students and teachers have been changed dramatically due to health and safety concerns in our communities surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. These changes have put us all in a very unique situation – forcing us to make the decision to either adjust and adapt to the new version of school or let the circumstances dictate our ability to achieve.
